Today, I finished a 6-part project. It took me 7 hours of straight work because my partner decided I should do it alone. I then learned that the reason my partner did not help me was because the teacher e-mailed the leader of every group, saying the project was cancelled. FML

Explain the situation to your teacher and see about extra credit?

Do you not check your e-mail, or even communicate with your partner? Surely he would've told you it was cancelled.

Emailed the leader of every group, suggesting OP was not the leader and that his friend was. Op your friend sucks, but just think of a good way to get him back.

I think op is saying, his/her partner knew about it being canceled the whole time and just decided to be a dick to op.

or op is an ass and the leader got back at him.

And you're implying that this is OP's fault because...? He still should've been informed by his "friend" regardless...

I'm not implying it's his fault because I don't know the situation, I was making an assumption based on the context that was given.

No, Spyderbane is implying OP's an ass.

It sucks but OP kind of deserved it for doing all the work theirself in a group project. Should have contacted the teacher once your partner made you do all the work, then they probably would have found out it was cancelled. It still sucks though because the group leader is a complete dick.

Really? I mean come on if no one started the project and it's due very soon, i would start it and finish it by myself if i have to.

His partner didn't tell him to do it alone. He just didn't do it or start it period. OP did the work because he didn't know if the project was cancelled or not and therefore didn't want to fail

Not always, if it's someone who dislikes you they could be out to **** you

If I were you I'd shove the project up his... What a rude thing to do. I'm sure it was an A+ job so don't get discouraged :)

And please inform us, how are you sure it was an A+ job?

An A+ doesn't mean shit if it's for a cancelled project...

that's bad luck, but next time try to communicate more with your team

How can Op communicate more if the "leader" isn't willing to tell him anything.

It's not the leaders job to take initiative for everyone in their group, everyone needs to step up and communicate in a group project

Actually it is the leaders job to make sure the whole group is on the same page, hence they're the leader. Yes it goes way another if everyone works on communication, but none of us know if OP just didn't try to communicate, or if their partner was just a dick and didn't say anything on purpose.

What if the group leader just wanted to be an ass? Better communication wouldn't really help with that...

Sounds like a ass partner if he was the leader (Hence leaders only email) and was just a dick to not tell you. sorry OP

Part # 7 Tack firmly on Leaders forehead

Your partner should of told you that it was canceled since he didn't want to help.

I don't understand why you dont just bring it in and just say that your partner didn't tell you it was cancelled and you spent alot of time on it and see if you can still hand it in.

Turn it in to the teacher and explain what happened. Your partner failed at group leader in not communicating while you were willing to step in and do all the work yourself. The teacher needs to know that.

Some of that is the teacher's fault. he/she should have told the whole class.
